Factoids on Radio 2

Is it meant to be ironic?

Half the 'facts' they come up with aren't even remotely true. Do they do that on purpose?

That man talking about his experiences in Japanese prisoner of war camp was pretty harrowing stuff Tenrec if you were listening to that. I was in a traffic jam at the time.
How do you know Evian that they're not true?
I always thought they were they have researchers to dig them up. Why not phone the BBC and ask them?

I know some are wrong because I've heard them and known them not to be true.

Like last week they said only humans sleep on their back. I have photographic evidence to the contrary.

But I don't care enough to actually call anyone.
The factoid about only humans sleep on their backs even I know thats not true because my ex husband used to sleep on his back...
